Ladies and Gentlemen, we have an exciting event coming up for you. The very much awaited Tie Breaker between one of our top athletes, Fred and one of our awesome coaches, Brian is just around the corner!
Fred and Brian’s friendly rivalry stems from the CrossFit Merge 2012 summer throw down. It was an action packed, fun filled day in which Mergers came and gave it their all. While the women’s and almost Rx divisions had clear cut 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, the men’s Rx division had Fred and Brian in a tie for the 1st place slot. It was decided that day that they would at some point hold a “tie breaker” WOD to settle the score. Months went by and by Winter still no tie breaker was had. The rivalry continued at the CrossFit Merge Winter team throwdown. Although it was a team throwdown, there was one workout in which Brian edged out Fred by only 1 rep! Fast forward to almost exactly 1 year since the CrossFit Merge Summer throwdown. We’re happy to announce that at 12:00 pm on Saturday, May 11, we invite the CrossFit Merge community to watch and cheer on Fred and Brian as they throw down and finally settle the score from 1 year ago. The workout will also be used as part of the criteria for the soon to be announced, advanced classes. Stay tuned for more details!
So SAVE THE DATE!!!! and be sure to not miss out on this fun event!!! It will be LEGENDARY!!!! 😀
